Pronounced bouquet of exotic fruit and wildflowers with a touch of honey. This wine is dry and balanced with crisp fruit flavors.
Simple white wine that goes down easy, light and crisp, showing pear and almond notes and an herbal finish. Best as an aperitif.
Well focused, with ripe flavors of pear, apple, fig and spice that resonate on the finish. Lush and full-bodied, it's one of the better, and eminently affordable, varietal wines from Northern Italy.
Soft and inviting, showing peach and floral aromas and flavors, all nicely balanced and in the right proportions. The finish is refreshing.

Light, creamy and fresh, this simple pinot grigio will accompany a variety of light fish or chicken preparations. Its pleasant butternut aroma is typical of the grape.
Touches of pear and almond give this light, dry white an easy approachability which resolves into an herbal finish.
